COVID-19 Protocols for In-Person Services

In this era of COVID-19, we have been working hard to create policies and protocols to allow events to happen safely. For our community, this is based in the Jewish value of Pikuach Nefesh (the preservation of human life). To ensure that you and every event attendee feels safe, we want to make sure you are aware of these policies and protocols. Below outlines what we are asking of you as an event attendee.

  2. Services will be a hybrid of in -person and zoom and/or virtual 
  3. Maintain a distance of six feet from people outside of your pod/family unit.
  4. Wear a mask at all times, even if you have been fully vaccinated. 
  5. Hand free sanitizers are placed throughout the building including our main lobby, as you enter the sanctuary, social hall,          office and religious school wing.
